Stephen Neu

Financial Advisor, SageSpring | Investment Professional, RJFS

After being born in Atlanta, Georgia, Stephen’s family moved to Montgomery, Alabama where he spent most of his years growing up. He and his wife met in their senior year of high school after they moved one more time to Knoxville, Tennessee. Prior to joining SageSpring, Stephen attended Union University for an undergraduate degree in Business Management as well as a Master’s of Accounting. During his time at Union, Stephen worked in the Office of University Ministries followed by Student Financial Planning. He currently holds the Series 7 and Series 66 licenses.

His favorite part of what he does is getting to hear parts of a client’s story. Each of the clients that we work with are unique and the uniqueness of the clients is what keeps the job exciting. No client is ever exactly these same, so no day is ever exactly the same. He also loves the opportunity to learn under other advisors. Being new to the industry, he sees it as a huge blessing to sit under people that do their job excellently and follow them to see how the job should be done.

At this time, Stephen primarily focuses on preparing reports and account information for client meetings with advisors on the team. He assists them during meetings and completes behind-the-scenes tasks that need to take place in order to help clients have their needs met.

After work hours, Stephen enjoys spending time with his wife, Ashleigh, and one-year-old daughter, Mia. If it’s a nice afternoon, he might take Ashleigh on a motorcycle ride or go on a family hike. No matter what they are doing, though, they always love meeting other people and hearing about them and their stories.

David Miller 

Financial Advisor, SageSpring | Investment Professional, RJFS

Originally from Nashville, Indiana, David and his wife, Erin, planted roots in Nashville, Tennessee, in 2013. He graduated from the University of Taylor with a degree in Biblical Studies. Prior to joining SageSpring Wealth Partners, David worked for Thrivent Financial. He holds the Series 6 and Series 66 registrations, as well as Tennessee life, health, annuity, and long-term care insurance licenses.

David primarily focuses on updating clients regularly to their financial picture and helping clients reach their goals. One of the main things that brought David to SageSpring was the unwavering commitment to putting clients first. SageSpring and Raymond James are both independent and therefore not tied to any one group of products or services. Because of this, David is able to ensure that every recommendation he gives is done as a fiduciary.

David loves getting into the details and implementing the tax-efficient financial planning strategies that help clients keep as much of their hard-earned money as possible. His biggest passion is helping clients dream about their legacy and ensuring that each part of a client’s plan makes sense for their individual situation.

When not in the office, David spends time serving at his church, with his family, and traveling – though traveling is much harder with a young family. David and his wife, Erin, have three children; two daughters, Wren and Kate, and a son, Hank.

Neither Raymond James Financial Services nor any Raymond James Financial Advisor renders advice on tax issues, these matters should be discussed with the appropriate professional.
